This elegant looking mouse measures 4.4 x 2.7 x 1.4 inches and weighs around 4.8 pounds. On the surface, it looks like a slick replacement pointer.

The Blue Track technology in this solid mouse enables it to work on any surface. You can use it in your favorite coffee shop or on any park bench. This basic mouse works with most Android tablets.
